Lincoln, NE (AP) - A 23-year-old man has been sentenced to prison after pleading guilty to a string of burglaries at Lincoln churches.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports Judge Jodi Nelson on Tuesday sentenced Jarrod Luther to four to five years in prison for three counts of burglary.

Luther was arrested on Aug. 5, 2010, when a police dog tracked him and another man to a backyard near the Antelope Park Church of the Brethren.

Police alleged the men broke into the church and stole money and other valuables.

Another six churches in the area also were hit.

Luther had pleaded guilty and participated in a drug court but withdrew last month.

The other man arrested in the burglaries, Treven Bruce, is serving a prison term for the crimes.
